Pharmaceutical based Design


Manufacturing in the pharmaceutical processing industry is predicated on the effective production of sterile medicinal products. Sanitation is vital to pharmaceutical production and processing, restricting the type of mixers used to air driven and electric mixers primarily. Mixers capable of fully mixing pharmaceuticals is highly depended on by the pharmaceutical processing industry. To create a standard of quality each product must be well blended, requiring a mixer based on the environmental variants of the pharmaceutical production line, to best evenly blend the individual product components. SPX FLOW offers specialized mixer design, to custom design a mixer to the customer’s needs. SPX FLOW’s global mixing lab in Rochester, New York, is a scientific testing environment where SPX FLOW brands Lightnin and Plenty utilize state-of-the-art predictive technologies to explore mixing solutions.

Pharmaceutical Applications: Mixing

  • vaccine production
  • antibiotics
  • mammalian cell cultures
  • blood factors
  • injectables
  • buffer solutions

Heat Transfer?

SPX FLOW develops and manufactures custom heat transfer systems for the pharmaceutical processing industry. SPX FLOW designs custom fit heat exchangers by first understanding the specifics of the product and customer needs. Developing heat exchanger systems with dedicated sanitary standards requires a depth of technical and industry experience. SPX FLOW process engineers leverage decades of industry experience and a network of global test labs to build calibrated heat exchanger applications. Our innovations centers located in Shanghai, China; Silkebog, Denmark; and Mamirolle, France, feature a testing lab to for exploitative problem solving and application development.

Pharmaceutical Applications: Heat Exchangers

  • Antibiotic broths
  • Culture media sterilizers
  • Sterile water
  • Cosmetics
  • Shampoos
  • Conditioners
  • Creams

  • Mineral and baby oils
  • Starches


A sophisticated drug delivery technology developed to address the changing demands of the pharmaceutical processing industry. These technologies rely on the application of rich particles. Particles, which were once simply carriers for the drug, are now integral parts of complex delivery systems and need to exhibit advanced functional properties. Spray drying creates particles with the advanced characteristics required by new pharmaceutical technologies. Spray drying provides a cost-effective method to develop the particle’s functional characteristics, using processes like microencapsulation to implement controlled delivery strategies, such as taste-making or controlled release technologies. Providing a faster process and using less energy, spray drying is an integral part of modern pharmaceutical processing and freeze-drying systems.




Industrial separation equipment is primary to the clarification process and ultimately product quality.
